  1. Team swapping

    Gotta say Viper I'm with you on that we were on competitive on friday and was 5 v 5 lost first round 3 guys left and then we had the rest of the rounds with just 2 of us till we got kicked... not been back since...
  2. What happened?

    That why this is called a discussion forum not an announcement forum. You don't get to make pronouncements sit back and expect nobody to have an opinion. Making a post expecting a unanimous chorus of approval ain't gonna happen. We have all been caught out by large companies exploiting some peoples inability to complete a game without DLC or not being prepared to be the same as the next guy. Sadly some of us have also been caught out by smaller ones too (Days of War) so a little healthy investigation that goes a little deeper than the glossy adverts is wholly advisable!
  3. What happened?

    ..... and you dont think knowing about who you are dealing with is important? Surely it should be ok to talk about the guys who actually make the game, and their history of DLC rip offs! or are we all supposed to forget about that too!. it looks like the typical Hollywood version of WWII nice graphics sure enough but I bet the cost and the DLC is gonna be astronomical! and Nazi Zombies... oh please!
  4. What happened?

    The comparison or video link was, I believe was to illustrate Activisions mercernary nature! you seem unaware that Activision made both titles!
  5. How will you play Battalion 1944 (Poll)

    Options in poll were a bit blinkered but seeing it pared down to the choices was just a little surprising even for recent posts. How about community players,.. The guys that actually make content... Or is that now not an option?
  6. How will you play Battalion 1944 (Poll)

    wow just wow!

    Two very small observations I have..... one is my confusion and obviously it's because I'm too old to fully understand it...in comp mode on the one hand we have the ....we can't have weather because it effects the pure skill element,but standing there in some brightly coloured uniform or with a brightly coloured weapon has no effect to you being targeted?....... I don't need an answer it's purely an observation like I said I am clearly too old to understand, so I don't need to be told I already know. However.... secondly one does not have to be a rocket scientist to see that if these forums are to be believed and acknowledged as a pretty fair representation of feeling about upcoming games.. If Bat44 caters for the competitive gamers...then someone needs to make a game for the guys that want a classic shooter in a realistic environment with authentic skins utilising the full weather mechanics of the best game engine out there. Because the overall feeling I get now reading the forums is that we clearly have two distinct groups who saw what they hoped for in the Kickstarter! And viewed the same information in very different ways.

    It certainly is a pretty big right turn at Normandy!!! instead of the conventional left one! You can argue about competitive this or that but the original reason a lot of us jumped on board was because it was set in real life locations... In the promo video they even went to those locations to get it right so why on earth if you want to get the village right would you then put soldiers in dayglow colours!! like has been said a million times that in itself is fine just so long as the guys that want a WWII game can have a WWII game... by being able to switch that crap off!
  9. Thank you so much Oldboy.... most interesting thread i've read in ages,,, fascinating stuff, more of the same it would be amazing to get a truly accurate player model for just once!
  10. Fear of the Direction of Development

    Lol duke nice try.... They ain't biting!
  11. Realism

    Says the one who thinks his are!..... OT I guess it very much depends what divisions they decide to include but yup agreed it would be great to see a good degree of authenticity for those of us that are interested!
  12. Colourful maps with example pictures

    Amen Oldboy... Unreal engine may be... but war wasn't pretty. Authentic looking environments or maps for some of us are just as important as having perfect visibility is for some. Surely bad weather would be just something else for EVERYONE to master! Otherwise why use engines capable of realistic world environments if you refuse to use half their abilities!
  13. Help us decide our competitive rank names

    Oh dear!......like I said before WWII is so inconvenient.... Nasty Germans.... Creme v brown would upset less people..... I'll get my coat!
  14. Deleted Topic about Grenade Use?

    Its ok farq i understand why you did it like has been said a number of times no need for personal attacks. With regard to the day 1 backer card... i guess we all need to leave by that rationale because its changed from what was advertised!
  15. Deleted Topic about Grenade Use?

    Wow... never expected that!
  16. Fidelity

    We spent a lot of time and effort here I hope so!
  17. Convoy Escort - A new GAMEMODE idea

    I would suggest you read the rest of the posts Pukiz I was responding to the previous comments .They were not standalone comments they were in reference to community gamers in particular and teamplay in general!
  18. Convoy Escort - A new GAMEMODE idea

    Well this kind of mode would definitely suit the more community based gamers because it engenders teamplay I don't believe it would suit the more competitive because unless there was a perk/reward for repairing no competitive guy would risk a death to help it's been the same in every game...... But for teamplay it's a no brainier in my opinion Day of infamy got it right with the officer/radioman ethic so you had to stick together ... This could be Bat44's unique cooperative selling point.
  19. Alienware Competition Announcement!

    Trust me Walker he will...... Unless you can sell him some nylons etc huge congrats on the win bud having recently upgraded our pc's I can only imagine how cool your new one is,.. Enjoy your new games ninjabastard machine!
  20. Fear is knocking to the door

    I've waited to post as I wanted to gauge people's feelings to see if mine were unreasonable. I can remember the original tag-line to make the best classic WWII FPS and with the big V-log announcement the other day it did come across that Bat44 was not going to be tied to a WWII environment. That in itself is not a deal breaker but it is an indication that things have moved into different areas. All the points raised here have been very valid and it really serves no purpose in going over them all again but what I would say is after an experience with another game that moved the goalposts I believe some of us are a little worried that perhaps it could be happening again. Now after a bad experience it's very easy to get twitchy about things that we assumed were set In stone that now seem to be a bit more fluid and flexible. What i can say is this I know with my interactions with the devs here that they "without question want the best game they can make" my only concern now is that the game they want and the game they described are currently not completely the same and for some people that is the biggest cause for concern. In the end because of the length of time from inception to delivery there of course will be changes of thinking and that's to be expected, I believe after the V-log statement that the devs will be spending more time on here that could help solve these concerns. So now perhaps as questions get raised, before they have time to fester they could get answered. Some will see this as a negative post but it is just observations I have made by reading recently....more than posting, I have been less active of late because of a number of reasons! having been heavily involved in three games there has been a element of frustration that in lots of areas, in all games that discussions about cosmetics seem to get more traction and input than actual discussions on gameplay and design........... Just the random ramblings of an old hippy!!
  21. Where is the line to be drawn?

    If you tick all the boxes for the competitive types... they can keep it as vanilla as they like. They would never play on custom servers anyhow... Why would you want to restrict players that would never play competitively? it wont diminish the game only enhance the player base. even if it creates distinct player groups.
  22. Fidelity

    Just as long as it's optional like all things... Server side tools that allow us old buggers to have more traditional looks.
